Crimson Chat

The Crimson Chat (Epthianura tricolor) is a species of small bird found in Australia. It is also known as the Tricoloured Chat, Saltbush Canary, and Crimson-breasted Nun. Crimson Chats are usually 4-5 inches (10-13 cm) in length and 10-11 grams in weight. They have long, thin legs; a pointy, downward curving bill; and a brush- like tipped tongue. Adult males are covered in brown feathers, have red crowns and under parts; a black mask around their eyes; and white throats. Females and younger Chats are colored similarly, but with paler markings.
